The hotel is very conveniently located. Rooms are not big or fancy but they are decent. The hotel staff was very helpful. If you are not going to spend too much time in the room and want to explore the city, this would be a good choice given a good value.

The Scandic Vulkan is the hotel I tend to stay in when I am in Oslo and don't want to directly in centre of town. The large reception has a bohemian feeling about it, The rooms are all clean and tidy and the internet as always with Scandic is easily accessible and of course without charge. If you don't want...

This hotel has the perfect location in Oslo. It's right next to Mathallen (large food and restaurant court) and also in 5 minutes you are in Grünerløkka, a trendy area in Oslo. The hotel has a great atmosphere and the service and the rooms are very good. We stayed in a superior extra room with a great view, great bed... More

We did stay only a night, had a meeting and just had a breakfast and left. But we felt the organisation skills, clean and confortable rooms, staff always helpfull and around. There is a nice bazaar next to the hotel, which is excellent for afternoon drink and fresh fish:))) we all loved the bazaar.

Scandic Vulkan is a great hotel if you are looking for a place that is both central and quiet. The hotel itself is 50mtr from Mathallen Oslo, which is a great place for food, drinks and interesting food. Hotel staff was professional and helpful at all times. Every time we walked in to the reception area there was a smile... More

My friend and I spend three grey, drizzly Oslo days here and loved it. The room was petite but the décor funky and cosy. It's fairly basic in terms of cosmetics etc. but it was a great deal. They could work on the house keeping a bit though as I found a man's dirty sock under the chair. At reception... More

Stayed here one night to see a show and visit Mathallen. Location good for Mathallen, not so good for show, took a taxi. Hotel fairly new, staff friendly and helpful. Room a good size for the price we paid, clean and quiet. Our room faced the only road, still no noice. Did not try breakfast, as we went to Mathallen... More

Our room was cozy and comfortable. There were plenty of breakfast options! Eggs, bacon, sausage, breads, meats, cheeses, vegetables, fruits, yogurts, cereals, and there were signs indicating what was gluten free (including gluten free crisp bread and gluten free muesli, or granola). The hotel is walking distance to the city center, but it's also near a bus-line. Right behind the... More

We stayed at the scandic Vulkan at Oslo. The hotel website looked very nice and everything looked oké in the beginning. Untill we came in our room. It was a horrible room and prehistoric.

Loved the location of this hotel. It's within walking distance of the city centre, and right above Mathallen, where you can buy all the food you might wish for, and then some. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was as expected, and it all looked clean and new. However, the rooms were quite small. We had a superior room,... More
